Bethanne Barner ELL Teacher
I am a new ELL teacher here at Royal Live Oaks Academy. I have lived in SC for 15 years. I have ten years of experience as an ESOL teacher working with grades K-5. I also have 5 years of experience as a SC State trained ESOL Instructional Coach, working with ELL and classroom teachers of grades K-12.
I am originally from Upstate NY. I have Bachelor's of Science degrees in Elementary Education and Math/Science/Technology Education from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY. I also have a Master's of Education Degree in Literacy & Curriculum and Instruction from Lesley University in Boston, MA.
Being a teacher is awesome! I also love being a mom. My son is 9 and my daughter is 7. We have two dogs, Sniffy and Luna. We enjoy watching movies and going to the pool and the beach. I love to bake, sing, and read. If you read a good book, please let me know about it!
I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful staff and I look forward to teaching and getting to know my new students. See you soon!
